Punjab Wildlife Department rescues a pair of lions from a resident’s bathroom in Multan
The owner was fined for violating the farm rules and guidelines of the Punjab Wildlife Act.
The Punjab Wildlife Department has rescued a pair of lions from the house of a Multan resident and penalized him Rs.130,000 for the crime.
The Deputy Director of the Wildlife Department Hassan Ali Sukhera said a team raided the resident’s house in Khushhal Colony and recovered the lions on the 30th of May 2020 after getting a search warrant.
The lions were being kept in a bathroom. The owner was fined for violating the farm rules and guidelines of the Punjab Wildlife Act.
The wildlife in Pakistan is often mistreated due to a lack of awareness and law. Previously, people were outraged over the poor treatment of Kaavan, an elephant at Islamabad Zoo. More than 200,000 people signed the petition advocating to free chained Kaavan.
The famous US singer Cher also protested for Kavaan’s freedom. When a Pakistani court ordered to free the elephant, Cher termed it ‘one of the greatest moments of her life’. She also thanked the Pakistani government.
Following that, the court also ordered to relocate other animals, which include brown bears, birds, and lions, until the capital’s zoo improves its standards.
